Flexible multi-format streaming with SimulStream!
SimulStream is a premium driver upgrade that delivers digitized audio and video content from Osprey capture cards to multiple applications at the same time. Use it to:

  • Simultaneously send the same live content to many different encodersWindows Media, Adobe Flash, MPEG-4, etc.
  • Deliver the same live content to different playback devices, scaled and optimized for each device.
  • Stream live in one or more popular formats while saving to disk in an uncompressed, editable format.

The Optimized Solution SimulStream
Reaching the broadest audience with an optimum viewing experience is critically important to any streaming video application. SimulStream lets you individually create, tailor and optimize video for several applications and audiences - all at the same time - live!

Competing solutions may let you deliver multiple streams in different encoded formats, but they force you to use the same frame size, frame rate, bitmap overlays (logos) and other critical parameters for each stream. This greatly limits flexibility when you need to deliver live video to many different playback devices and to users with widely different levels of available bandwidth.

SimulStream lets you deliver full-frame video to high-speed Internet users; smaller, lower-rate video to DSL and dial-up subscribers, and optimized video for several different Mobile Device standards, all while saving the same content to a storage device for post-processing and other VOD applications.
